It's hard to find a book more eloquently written than Running Barefoot. It's probably the first book I've read that is highly centered around religion of some sort, and I didn't seem to mind.
This novel is absolutely stunning and so beautiful that I found it difficult to stop reading. Although it is quite long, I read it in the span of a day. Slowly soaking in the rich tales of the Navajo and the sweet musical musings.
It was difficult not to fall in love with Josie and Sam, and then feel the heartbreak when things just weren't right with them.
Memorable. That is the single word to describe this delightfully heavy book.
